  1. Another day of firsts! This lockdown is certainly encouraging everyone to try new things!
    First one I have to admit to is dying my hair roots…it just got to the point of not being able to kid anyone that the hair colour is natural (now a full 9 weeks since the last time my hairdresser wove her magic). It actually looks OK for a first attempt but time will tell…..!
    My Mum was in the middle of selling her house in Bristol when the full lockdown came so suddenly. This brings me to the second amazing achievement of today. The people buying her house were only able to market theirs via an on-line video tour put together by the estate agents but incredibly they have sold it in double-quick time. Such is the power of technology and the determination of people to try to keep doing ‘normal’ things. Not sure how we will continue to go forward as most of the solicitors are not working normally but time will tell if this tiny detail can also be overcome.

  2. Today in summary was juggling work whilst daughter made friends with woodlice, had tantrum about too much sky in her fabulous picture she drew, started the Lego keyworkers picture spotting challenge around the village for our exercise and fish and chips from the mobile van for tea. Highs and lows!
